CBC/Radio-Canada Commits To Dejero For Field Contribution

As part of a new multi-year agreement, CBC/Radio-Canada (CBC) has selected Dejero as its primary field contribution solutions provider to support its HD ENG activities. As part of this agreement, Dejero will help with CBC’s transition to IP workflows. Canada’s national public broadcaster has used Dejero’s wireless transmission technology for over a decade.

CBC is in the midst of a major relocation project, moving its French Services HQ to the all-IP 'Maison de Radio-Canada' (MRC) broadcast center in Montreal. Upon completion later this year, the new SMPTE ST 2110 compliant MRC will support CBC’s multiplatform and digital strategies.

As a long-time partner of CBC in the area of field contribution, Dejero is supporting the all-IP infrastructure at the MRC by providing the national broadcaster with the latest Dejero solutions, including WayPoint 204 SMPTE ST 2110 receivers, EnGo 260 mobile transmitters, rack-mounted PathWay transmitters, and the LivePlus mobile app for iOS and Android devices across the network. Dejero is also providing CBC with connectivity and cloud-management services.

François Vaillant, executive director, engineering solutions at CBC/Radio-Canada, said Dejero’s technology met CBC’s needs and expectations, “being reliable and agile, particularly when broadcasting in bandwidth-constrained scenarios from the field.”
